Anna Clark is Andson’s amazing Grants & Evaluations Coordinator, joining us after her work with Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada. We sat down with her to get to know her a little better, and here’s what she had to say!
Where are you from originally?
Tell us a little about your family!
I have 2 boys; Micheal is 22 and Todd is 20, Todd is special needs but is an amazing young man, Micheal lives in Idaho and is doing great, I couldn’t be more proud of him and everything he has accomplished in his life. I am the youngest of 10 children.
What was your major?
Non-profit management (haven’t completed)
Your most genuine piece of advice:
Be stubborn about your goals, but flexible about your methods on obtaining those goals, as long as you are trying you are one step closer and it’s never too late to reach your goals.
What do you like to do in your down time?
Workout, read, and spend time with my family and friends.
Any fun facts?
I play the flute, I’m the youngest of 10 kids, and I have lost over 200 lbs in three years by working out and eating right (didn’t have weight loss surgery).
Walk us through a typical day at the office for you!
Research grant opportunities, write grant proposals, visit tutoring sites, compile grant paperwork.
What do you wish to accomplish at Andson?
I wish to assist Andson with receiving the necessary funding needed to serve as many students as possible with the programs we provide, I also hope to assist Sonia and Anthony with taking the organization where they want it in the future and being a building block of the Andson brand.
